Question 6.4L Hemi 8 Speed

When are we going to see a 6.4L Hemi with an 8 speed transmission? I'm looking to buy a Power Wagon but with Chrysler phasing in the 8 and 9 speed transmissions I don't want to buy the 6 speed and regret it when the 8 speed comes out in the Ram 2500s.

The G56 6 speed manual would also be sweet as well. Some way to override the 8 speed, like paddle shifters could be interesting. With 4x4 and low range=16 speeds. Just in case you need to pull out a redwood tree by the roots.

I don't see why they can't. The 6.4L truck Hemi is well under the 8HP70s torque rating. Maybe they have to modify the bellhousing to fit the 6.4 block or something. Or maybe they're just still testing it.
